Welcome Letter from Principal

 

Dear Families:

It is with enthusiasm that we welcome you to the Bayville Elementary Schools! The Bayville schools offer children in grades K-5 stimulating and rigorous learning opportunities within a safe, nurturing and supportive setting. A partnership of teachers, staff, parents and the community at large works together to create an environment that fosters the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of every child. By providing instruction that informs, inspires and challenges, we hope to instill a love of learning that continues throughout children’s lives. Our goal is to help each child develop an enthusiasm for learning, a respect for self and others and the skills to become a creative, independent thinker.
 
In our schools, we embrace the challenges of the future while we continue to cherish and celebrate the traditions of the past. It is our remarkable staff, involved parents and eager children who come together to make the Bayville schools such a wonderful place.
 
We hope your visit to our website will give you a quick snapshot of life at our schools.  Please explore our links to find out more about the Bayville Elementary Schools and our programs.


Sincerely,  

Scott McElhiney          Dorothy McManus

Family Fun With Math and Reading

Puzzles, card games and a scavenger hunt and were just some of the engaging activities that primary school students and their families enjoyed during the Family Math/ELA Night on Jan. 15.

Held in the Bayville Primary School multipurpose room, attendees from both of the district’s primary schools had the opportunity to rotate through many activities that were fun while boosting reading and math skills. Students went home with the games they played, allowing them to practice these skills with their families. 

“This is an opportunity not only to improve proficiency in important areas, but also to spend quality family time doing something meaningful,” said Kimberly Ferina, Coordinator of Mathematics, K-12. “Students are excited to come back to school at night to play these games and don’t consider it work. That’s our goal, to make students eager learners and help them understand that education is not a chore.” 

The event was organized by Ms. Ferina and Dorothy McManus, Coordinator of ELA, K-5.
